Bryn Mawr, PA (PRWEB) February 8, 2010

Kevin Lynch, ChFC®, CLU®, RHU®, REBC®, CASL®, CAP®, LUTCF, CFP®, recently joined The American College as an Assistant Professor of Insurance. He brings with him four decades of experience in the financial services industry.

Lynch, an Army brat, was raised in Germany until high school. He served in Vietnam, as did his father and brother. He is now the father of an Iraq War veteran.

Prior to joining The American College, Lynch was an agency owner with Nationwide Insurance & Financial, in Grand Prairie, TX. In just 38 months, the property and casualty agency Lynch built went from zero to over 2,800 policies in force.

In 2004, he joined The American College as Associate Vice President of Advancement. After working in Advancement, Lynch returned to the financial services industry for four years. His most recent contribution to the financial services field was as a Financial Consultant and Regional Management Associate with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

In 2009, Lynch returned to The American College. His course responsibilities include Techniques for Prospecting, Essentials of Disability Income Insurance and Essentials of Annuities. In addition, he teaches insurance subjects in the Huebner School.

"Kevin's practical experience as a financial services practitioner brings added depth and understanding to his academic scholarship and instruction," said Walt Woerheide, Ph.D., CFP®, Dean and Vice President of Academic Affairs, holder of the Frank M. Engle Distinguished Chair in Economic Security Research and Professor of Investments at The American College.

Professor Lynch's many areas of expertise include annuities, life insurance, disability insurance and long-term care. He has been quoted in a variety of prestigious publications speaking about the importance of continuing education in the financial services industry and long term care insurance.

Lynch was the first person in his family to graduate from college and has been devoted to both higher and continuing education ever since. After receiving his first of three Associate of Science degrees in 1973, he went on to earn four additional college degrees and has started the Doctorate in Business Administration at Wilmington University as well as his eighth American College designation, the Chartered Leadership Fellow® (CLF®).

In addition, Lynch has also completed his Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) education.

Lynch and his wife, Kim, have been married for 35 years and have two children, Katherine and Kristian. When not rigorously pursuing his continuing education, he enjoys roller figure skating and pistol and rifle target shooting.
